The Berry Walnut Banana Bread is a great recipe to make when you have fruit that would otherwise not get eaten. Whenever I have bananas that are starting to turn brown, I whip up this recipe, adding any berries I have in the refrigerator. I can then restock my fridge with fresh fruit after my weekly grocery run. That allows me to always have fresh berries and bananas on hand without worrying about throwing fruit away if it doesn't get eaten that week.
For as long as I remember, Grandmother's house was one of my favorite places to visit. She always had fresh baked fruit pies, seasoned pretzels, cookies, fruit, and my favorite: her delicious apple dumplings. Find the quick and delicious recipe that will be sure to become a family favorite!
Your Holiday cheesecake doesn't have to be boring. Spice up your cheesecake presentation with a couple of simple, quick touches with ingredients that might already in your refrigerator.
When I prepare a cheesecake that will be served after a big meal to a large number of guests, I like to bake the cheesecake in a 13x9 baking pan instead of a regular cheesecake pan. The small squares make it easier for guests and friends to take a smaller pieces than the pie slices. When there are a couple of other desserts on the table and the main course has been enormous, not many people want an enormous piece of cheesecake.
This delicious layered almond carrot cake can be altered, but this is my personal favorite version of my carrot cake recipe. If you don't like almonds, you can substitute them for pecans or walnuts, or just eliminate them. You can also serve as a single layer cake to save time, but the layers nicely distribute the frosting between the cake.
I almost always cook dinner on Sunday night, and am starting to love the tradition of cooking a lavish meal once a week. A home cooked meal is something that I enjoy, especially when I have a busy week and simply want to enjoy food, a good recipe, and good company. Meatballs take a little while to make, but I usually make a batch and freeze the leftovers. That way I have a delicious but quick dinner or lunch when I don't have the time to cook.
I never have a lot of spare time during the summer weeks, which makes snacking on unhealthy foods a lot more tempting if I don't have something healthy and yummy that is ready to go. Gazpacho soup is something perfect to make a large batch of and serve over the course of the busy week. It is basically vegetables and spices and is easy to make. It also is a good recipe to make if you don't know what to do with all the ripe vegetables in your fridge.
